After leaving Ennis, we made our way South through Yellowstone National Park to Jackson Hole, WY. We spent the night in Jackson and visited the Milliondollar Cowboy bar and consumed vast quantities of” Jack Black. The next morning we visited Jack Dennis Fly Shop and purchased some flies and clothing.
For some reason, probably alcohol induced, we decided to take a dirt road out of Green River, WY to Rifle, CO. We never saw another car on that road but did see numerous antelope in the fields and low lying hills parallel to our path. Our destination was Aspen, CO where Fritz’s then girlfriend (now wife) and my wife (now # 1 ex.) and daughter Nadia would meet us. Bernie didn’t have anyone meeting him.
I remember making a request to my wife Ilse, that she bring a bag of luggage containing additional clothes for me since we were traveling in a 1974 Monte Carlo stuffed with camping gear and had decided to travel light. When we arrived at the Aspen airport, our significant others had already arrived from LA. There was no bag for me and three large ones for my wife and daughter – this was not going well. Now, about the fishing….
